So how shall I finish the nice summertime hokku.  It should be fairly easy as it is summertime and has been raining on and off all week.  We have been very busy doing grandparent duties with our grandsons.  Swim lessons, summer fitness programs, sewing projects and trampoline completion.  Helping a sister and her family as they are passing through to a family reunion.  We are a little fatigued and moving a little slower.  And then there is the grandsons' puppy....

There are lots more versions of this completion waiting to be read over at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.
